The county Purchasing Department announces the elimination of the $50 annual fee that had been required to be registered as a vendor with Bernalillo County.
“By eliminating this fee, we hope to encourage even more vendors to do business with the county,” says Bernalillo County Manager Tom Zdunek. “It will also bring county business practices in line with state and other local governments.”
The effective date of this change was Aug. 16. Vendors are still encouraged to register with the county. Some of the benefits for doing so include:
· Instant downloading of requests for bids (RFB) and requests for proposals (RFP)
· Automatic notifications of addendums and updates
· On-line viewing of RFB and RFP results
In addition, county departments have a centralized vendor database to more easily access vendors interested in doing business with Bernalillo County.
Bernalillo County purchases approximately $150 million of goods and services from vendors each year.
There are 650 vendors who are currently registered with the county.
“Giving businesses the opportunity to register as a vendor, free of charge, is just another example of the great customer service that Bernalillo County strives to give its customers,” says Bernalillo County Purchasing Director Lisa Sedillo-White.
